I agree that flagging stars would be very useful.

Instead you could perhaps draw on the map on arbitary locations using a tool like the polygonal lasso selection in photoshop(it draws straight line segments with every click you do).
Are you suggesting this as a way to draw
on the galaxy map, or as a way to select
It seems clumsy as a way to select. SHIFT+CLICK is a better know and more precise way to do multiple selections.
The idea of drawing directly on the map is interesting... maybe you could show your drawn lines to allies? I wonder if it is practical. Does anybody know of a game that implements something like this?

If that is implemented, the selection of a starlane to build/destroy will be a special event. Even with this feature, under normal use, there still is no reason to have starlanes clickable.
